New Gas Tax Takes Effect

New Gas Tax Takes Effect

Riverside – On Wednesday, November 1, California’s new gasoline tax went into effect—a result of the controversial passage of SB1 earlier this year. Although the 12 cents per gallon increase will generate much needed revenue to finance long overdue road maintenance, yet it is being received up and down the state like a lead balloon. A survey conducted by UC Berkeley showed 58 percent of respondents oppose the tax and at least 39 percent strongly oppose it. 

With the high rates of poverty in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, families across the region are expected to feel the negative impact of this added financial pressure—local residents on average, commute further to work than anywhere else in the state. 

The measure also restored the vehicle license fee revenue to at least four cities in Riverside County. Included among them are Eastvale, Jurupa Valley, Menifee and Wildomar.
